Parallel Universes series grew out of my study
of literature, with its ‘appearance versus reality’
themes, and out of my fascination with how German-born artist
Gerhard Richter applies paint. In every painting there are multiple
layers and colours, each representing a reality or 'universe'
viewer’s reaction will be unique, representing their own
personal, cultural, socio-economic and even gender-specific experiences.
If I have succeeded, these works will challenge us to see other
worlds, to look beyond the superficial and to appreciate and enjoy
the complexities of our lives.
